Waiting on Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It features each blogger's most anticipated books. This week, my pick is Glitch by Heather Anatasiu.

Summary: "In the Community, there is no more pain or war. Implanted computer chips have wiped humanity clean of destructive emotions, and thoughts are replaced by a feed from the Link network.

When Zoe starts to malfunction (or "glitch"), she suddenly begins having her own thoughts, feelings, and identity. Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: her glitches have given her uncontrollable telekinetic powers.

As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other glitchers including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future. Both boys introduce Zoe to feelings that are entirely new. Together, this growing band of glitchers must find a way to free themselves from the controlling hands of the Community before they’re caught and deactivated, or worse.

In this action-packed debut, Glitch begins an exciting new young adult trilogy."

Thoughts: Did someone say dystopia? I love the concept of chips being implanted to keep humans from having destructive emotions. It's kind of like Across The Universe meets Delirium. Sweet! And did I just read that there's a love triangle? Dude! I haven't read about a good love triangle in a long time. Plus, I'm totally loving the cover! It's pretty basic, but the text used for the title and the colors are gorgeous.

Expected publication: August 7th 2012 by St. Martin's Press

  9. This looks like yet another fantastic take on dystopian. Seriously, I think that genre is pretty much limitless! It reminds me a lot of Delirium too, which is a really good sign! A must-read for sure.
